middle east. we know the regime has used the weapons, multiple times this year and used them on a mauler scale, but still used them against its own people including not very far from last wednesday's attack has happen. we know that the regime was specifically determined to rid the damascus suburbs of the opposition and it was frustrated that it hadn't succeeded in doing so. three days before the attack chemical weapons personnel were on the ground in the area making preparations and we know that the syrian regime elements were told to prepare for the attack by putting on gas masks and taking precautions associated with chemical weapons. we know they were specific instructions. we know where the rockets were launched from. and at what time, we know where they landed. and when. we know rockets came only from regime controlled areas and went only to opposition controlled or contested neighborhoods. and we know as does the world, that just 90 minutes later all hell broke loose in the social media with our own eyes we have seen the thousands of reports from 11 separate sites in the damascus s
, but also providing useful information. the reason why after i became secretary, i called for the creation and then expansion of the department, if you see something, say something campaign, expanding this terrible tragedy could have been our worst. for me, the lesson is clear -- for every attack we experience, every threat we face, and every decent intelligence we come across, we learned. we assess our preparations and capabilities. we make changes. we become more flexible and -- in the actions we take and we get stronger and more nimble. the boston attack was not the only terrorist plot we confronted over the past 4.5 years. we dealt with the attempted christmas day coming aboard an airliner down for detroit. 20 10 air cargo threat as well as other plots that were effectively mitigated. some more international in scope and origin like the christmas they plot was involved a nigerian citizen who purchased ticket in ghama,. flew from legos to amsterdam and attended to ignite a bomb en route to america. from that attempted attack, we learned that relevant information possessed by u.s. custo
, unexpected leak of water from god knows where. this is water used to treat three of the reactors which are in a constant state effectively of melt down. they use that to cool down because if you don't do that, it will lead to a more serious event or environmental hazard. they use these to keep these very seriously overheating plants at a manager temperature and they store the then radioactive water in one of a thousands tanks, and they found that one or proper several of these are not secured, and not safe to stand near for any number of hours into if groundwater and then they think there is a real danger it is getting into the sea as well because the plant is so close to the sea coast. mismanagement, the worry that perhaps the japanese people haven't been given the entire truth, and like chernobyl, the possibility to stabilize it, if the weather is in the wrong direction, remains very, very high indeed. >> terrifying stuff. anita mcnoor, thank you very much. >>> bradley manning is likely to spend at least eight years in prison before being considered for patrol. >>> social. >> to try
on the serious and chemical weapons use and this most recent incident was not the first, the united states would support its military were the supreme military council specifically so we are not arming. but actually the supreme military council. as you have seen in the press, that has come out that there has been a lot of complaints about the late delivery of those weapons. there are several reasons for that. one is arguments over how effect of this can be because the fight in serious has ended up in the division of the country. some call it a stalemate and whatever we provide to them would not leave to the toppling of the assad regime but only sustaining the fight. the other more enduring argument has been supplying the smc wholesale that could and likely would leave those weapons into falling into the hands of the extremists. as it is currently construct did, that is a distinct possibility. however, i am not rejecting this as a vehicle for supporting the opposition but rather, and we talked about this in the paper, and i think this is also partially born from the findings of my colleague, what
, will simply be -- >> all right, that was simon speaking to us from just outside the houses of parliament in london where members of parliament are convening in just about a half hour's time. i do apologize for that technical glitch with i'm son. >> in the united states, b. gave an interview to u.s. television. he said that he hadn't decided on whether to take military action. >> if in fact we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict, not a repetition of iraq, which i know a lot of people are worried about, but if we are saying in a clear and decisive, but very limited way, we send a shot across the bow saying stop doing this, that can have a positive impact on our national security over the long term and may have a positive impact in the sense that chemical weapons are not used again on innocent civilians. >> barack obama speaking. we are joined out of washington. kimberly, looking over at what's happening in the u.k., will the potential slowdown there affect the u.s.'s decisions on syria? when can we expect obama to make a decision on what to do? >>

. and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. there is a lot going on in the news today. >>> we're going to start here in new york city where the united nations has today called an emergency session to convene the security council of the u.n. on an emergency basis late today to respond to what looks like it may have been the largest chemical weapons attack in the world since saddam hussein gassed his own people back in 1988. and looks like is the key phrase here. it's hard to prove. it is hard to tell conclusively when chemical weapons have been used especially if you are trying to tell from a distance. in that iraq case it took four years for experts to confirm that chemical weapons were, in fact, used then. physicians for human rights is one of the first groups to get into the site. they collected soil samples and tested them. the soil samples did show trace evidence of the elements that sarin gas breaks down into over time. and with those soil samples they were able to conclude that saddam hussein had used sarin and also mustard gas, like from world war i, mustard gas

if the syrian government uses chemical weapons to slaughter some of their own citizens, the united states will respond. if the u.s. doesn't respond right now, doesn't he look weak? >> well, i cannot subjectively feel out what other people will feel about the united states. what authority the president of the united states, any president of the united states has to draw a red line that implies that our military is going to be placed in harm's way, i don't think there's constitutional authority to do that and feel compelled without the approval of the congress to carry forth. so rhetoric and losing lives are not nearly as important as making certain that you do the action. so looking weak is not like losing lives, and anybody who has lost people in terms of these wars or intrusions, i know that they would agree with me. >> you served in the military, and you insist that before the u.s. gets involved again in military action around the world, the united states should reinstate the draft. it doesn't look like you've got a whole lot of support for that out there, but you've been raising this i

in a damascus suburb. let's go to paul who joins us live from washington. paul, what can we expect the president to say? >> reporter: what we've learned is this is not an announcement that an attack on syria is imminent. it's important to emphasize he won't come out and announce an attack is imminent. what he is going to talk about is talk about his decision-making process, what's been going on about the intelligence, about his consultations with congress, perhaps, consultations with allies. again, it's about his decision-making process toward any potential action in syria. >> so basically i guess it's safe to say what we heard yesterday from secretary of state kerry was a setup to what we'll hear from the president today? >> reporter: that's right. this announcement came out about an hour ago, so after we heard from the secretary of state kerry yesterday very forceful remarks followed not long after by the president. we were not expecting to hear again from the pez today. the white house announced they were consulting with republican leaders in the senate and tomorrow with the house, but no men
